Franklin Polo Academy (FPA) is committed to hosting world class arena polo games that feature top international and local players. The event season runs from May through October; ending with the much anticipated, unique “Poloween” match to wrap up the season. The completion of the Tractor Supply Co. Arena has ensured Harlinsdale Farm as the premier polo facility in the state of Tennessee. Spectators will have the unique opportunity to experience the “sport of kings” in a fun and friendly environment.
The Academy hosts polo clinics and lessons April through November to those interested in trying the sport first-hand without having to own horses or equipment. An interscholastic polo team has been a recent addition to the program, which involves traveling competition. For those out of school, FPA is dedicated to maintaining a club where members can learn and play this exciting sport on a routine basis.
You do not have to be an expert rider to enjoy polo lessons. FPA’s experienced horses and Certified Polo Instructors will teach you all the basics of polo in a fun, relaxed environment.
